Everything Tom said is true. What Peter said (guest house) is not!

So day two of the planning committee is underway. Looks like day one went about as well as could be expected. Like Tom, I remain busy and did not want to do all of the planning. Another reason is that I didn't want to presume anything/take total control/be a raging narcissist about it. After all, that's what the Shout Box is for. ;\)

I figured Tuttle Home Base would not really fly but put it in there for, I don't know, kicks and giggles, and to get a rise out of Mrs. Tuttle. Personally, I'm up for anywhere because it's gonna be a plane ride for me no matter which West coast locale we pick. Perhaps this is a matter for another thread, but an East coast or Midwest gathering could also happen, of course. Not having run this by the boss (gulp), I can offer two guest bedrooms for a minifest sometime.

Back on topic, I really enjoyed my time in Portland last year and would go back any time. Likewise, my time in San Francisco a few years ago, with a drive up the PCH into redwood country, was awesome, so that would actually be my first choice. I have a friend (college roommate) in Oak Harbor, WA, so the Seattle area would be a nice one for me to explore also. I've never been to Disneyland, so HomeDad's proposal has merit, too.

Any time is fine. The August dates work for me.

I guess my preference would be

1. SFO
2. PDX
3. SEA
4. LAX

I am really looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this works out.

If it ended up in either SFO or PDX, I would, circumstances permitting, endeavor, with all possible gusto, to be present.

Geez, Jack, how much potential gusto do you really have? \:\)

JP's airport code fixation notwithstanding, I more or less agree with his list. I'd probably lobby to amend the SFO thing to "Northern California Coast" or something. If it was California, I'd probably need it to be that last week of August instead of the earlier dates.

Or we could just crash Peter's sister's wedding.

If the Tuttlefest does come to Calif. I'll do my best to make it. I am locked into the Disneyland Hotel area from around Aug. 7-12 (wifes CME) but can still meet in the So. part of the state during that time.
Later in Aug. would be okay for a possible N. Calif. meet.

I would love to attend something, but given the fact that I have a 1 year old who doesn't do well without his naps, I'm a little leery.

My house would be right out, but there are some lovely parks in the area, along with quite a lot of lodging!

Of course, that would leave me up to planning, which I don't think anyone wants (especially not me!)

My plan not to plan is going according to plan! Mwah-ha-ha.

Elliot is one already?! And I thought my kid was growing fast.

I'm thinking at least some of us will be able to meet up in some form. Spending the better part of a week with the Tuttle clan was a lot of fun last year, as Tom is an excellent tour guide and resource. Doing that again would be cool, or just bumping into him/you guys for a few dinners or events would be fun, too. It'll be whatever we want to make of it, whether it's the joined-at-the-hip option that prototype3a and I have selected, or the "Don't I know you" passing glance that -------- and I have selected for my trip to ----.

Yup, he's 1. I think (because of that, and certain other reasons) Dizzkneeland would be right out for us. SF Bay Area or somewhere in Oregon would be ideal.

Who do we have in Oregon?

Mouse phobia?

Antipathy towards the ubercapitalist corporation?

Sex offender registry issues?

Personally, I have some friends just south of Eugene. We took Nolan's name from their last name. Ben just got a kidney transplant, so we would love to see him and his wife again. We can all crash at their house, hah.

Hmmm, I wonder if my sister would mind a weekend visit, as she is in the SF area. Now if I could only come up with the cash for the plane tickets (return sub-covered), get my passport by Aug. (LOL)and have my wife agree to it all, never going to happen for me.
